Lentil Minestrone

I actually made this a couple of months ago, at the beginning of summer because I love minestrone and lentils anytime of year. I knew some people might have a bad reaction about a fall soup being posted in the summer, so I saved it until Sept. came along. My husband once told me- when I served him soup for dinner during summer a couple years ago- that no one wants to eat hot soup after being in the hot sun. (Well, it doesn't really bother me!)

This was just one of the recipes I tried from the newer version of Deborah Madison's wonderful cookbook- Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone.

We absolutely loved it. I actually doubled it and froze some, so we could have a quick dinner. I end up doing that a lot when I make soups.
I will definitely make it again!

Recipe for Lentil Minestrone
* I used canned vegetable stock
* I used bowtie pasta
* I used spinach for my greens

This looks so good. I don't mind soup any time of year, but this is definitely perfectly for the cooler weather we're getting now.

Are you kidding me? I can enjoy this soup any time of year. Looks so hearty, satisfying and delicious.

This is my kind of dish! I could really eat soup year round for every meal and never tire of it. I'm signed up to do a soup swap with some friends and have been on the lookout for a killer recipe - I'm going to try this one this weekend!

The minestrone looks great. I'll have to check out the cookbook!
